International Perfume Museum

in 2019, MIP is reinventing itself

06 January 2019 / 10h00


In 2019, MIP is undertaking a complete makeover... to shed new light on perfumery with three spacious new emblematic areas in the Museum and its permanent exhibition, concerning the period from the Renaissance to the 21st century. Six months of major works will do full justice to these contemporary themes in perfumery.
During these works, scheduled from January to June 2019, MIP will remain open to the public in part. On entering the Museum, you will be able to visit a didactic exhibition on the art of perfume-making today. Then, after going through the Museum’s main gallery and the greenhouse, you can discover recently renovated rooms in Hôtel Pontevès dedicated to Antiquity and the Middle Ages.
To prolong your visit, we invite you to go to the Museum of Provençal Art & History (a 2-minute walk away) to see a selection of 18th to 21st-century artefacts from MIP before our Museum’s complete reopening on 20 June 2019.

Admission fee during works: €4 including MIP, Museum of Provençal Art & History and Villa Jean-Honoré Fragonard Museum
